by Madison Oliveria Wedding and Sales Specialist; Kimball Terrace Venue Manager I’ve always had a huge sweet tooth. My parents love to tell the story of when I was five years old and our Basset hound, Elvis, stole my cookie. They heard a commotion in the backyard and came running to see what was wrong. Apparently, I had grabbed Elvis by one droopy ear and shoved my entire little arm down his throat (past my elbow), screaming, “GIVE ME BACK MY COOKIE!” Lucky for the poor dog, my parents came to the rescue. “It’s okay, sweetie! It’s okay!” they assured me. “We’ll get you a new cookie!!” Since t ..read more

Admit it. If you haven’t tasted quality caviar served on a buckwheat blini with a dallop of crème fraiche, aren’t you curious to know what the fuss is about? Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to indulge in a little decadence with your special someone, and nothing says romance like candlelight, soft music, long-stemmed roses, champagne…and caviar. Today, caviar symbolizes the epitome of luxury and class, but it wasn’t always so. In fact, 150 years ago caviar was so cheap in the United States that it was served for free in bars—like pretzels or popcorn—just to encourage patrons to drink more ..read more

by Michelle Hamby Event Team and Reluctant Chef I consider cooking a Necessary Evil. If I’m the one making a meal, it’s probably going to be hamburgers or grilled cheese sandwiches, and maybe, if I’m feeling fancy, I’ll add tater tots. My husband, on the other hand, is an excellent cook and actually likes doing it. He even teaches cooking at a local university . Our children, and pretty much anyone who eats at our house, are very grateful I did such a good job picking a husband. Early in our marriage, my husband made a pasta dish for me that I absolutely LOVE. Unfortunately, I got pregnant si ..read more

by Nick Bergstrom Reception and Events Team Mom and Dad are both the youngest of eight kids, so when my extended family all get together for Christmas, it’s huge! Each year, the task of hosting the big family get-together rotates between the aunts and uncles. On the day before the main event, my siblings and I meet at my parents’ house for a much smaller celebration of our own, where we swap stories, enjoy each other’s company, and…who am I kidding? We get together to eat Mom’s plättar. Plättar are Swedish pancakes, basically a lighter and fluffier version of crepes. Like crepes, they can be ..read more

It’s About the Story

by Ryan Crafts President and Resident Storyteller Growing up in the catering business, it always puzzled me why, in the middle of a busy event, my mother would suddenly pick up the microphone and talk to the diners about the food they were being served. “No one wants to hear it,” I would think to myself. “They just want to eat in peace!” But now, with a couple more decades of experience under my belt, I get it. It’s never just about the food. It’s about the story the food tells. The Best Sandwich He Ever Had I will always remember the first meal we catered for University of Utah football at ..read more

by Meagan Price Director of Marketing and Kitchen Sorceress Growing up at Culinary Crafts and working events from a young age, I learned the art of putting out fires. I don’t mean literal ones (well, sometimes literal ones), but being a full-service caterer means constantly dealing with problems on the fly, from changing a tire to repairing a bride’s dress to figuring out how to cook the entrée when the venue’s oven breaks. My childhood gave me an unshakable sense of “I can figure that out.” I’m grateful for the confidence I developed, but sometimes it got me into trouble, like it did on the ..read more

by Mistie Tunbridge Pastry Chef and Girl with the Golden Smile A Thanksgiving meal isn’t complete until you end it with a slice of perfect apple pie. When I was growing up, my grandma always took on the job of making what seemed like hundreds of pies for Thanksgiving dinner. I remember pulling a stool up to the counter, helping her stir, and putting together pies all day long—of course sneaking tastes along the way. When I got older and more into baking, I decided that I wanted to contribute a pie of my own to Thanksgiving. Thus, my journey began to make the perfect apple pie. Through many tr ..read more

Last month, on our Bacchus bartending webpage, we shared a recipe for Milk-Washed Apple Cider. There, we promised to share the recipe for a milk-washed antrim cocktail that we made for a fabulous event using the same milk-washing technique. To make good on our promise, here is that recipe. Enjoy! Cacao-Bittered & Milk-Washed Antrim (makes 4 cocktails) Ingredients: 6 oz cognac or brandy 6 oz tawny port ½ oz bitters (If that seems like a lot of bitter, it is! But trust us; the milk-washing process will smooth it all out in the end. Don’t be afraid to use some strong flavors of bitters. We ..read more
